Spring has sprung..

Posted on


We have been blessed with sunshine! So much that the clematis think it is April, and are leaping up non-existent stakes that haven't been put in yet. Today I bought new vine eyes for C to put into fence panels so I can re-train Hagley Hybrid and Wisley Cream, which is ignominiously tied up in a bunch, with long tendrils trying to escape. Louise Rowe, an exquisite double variety with lilac twisted petals, already has three buds, about 6 weeks early I would say. The danger, of course, is that the weather reverts to normal for this time of year, and they all get frosted. There was a bit of ice on the windscreen this morning...  
Here is Louise in all her glory in 2013.  More later!
